    DOFLinx mod of Future pinball War of the Worlds.  A truly engaging game that has an 80's feel and a killer soundtrack.  I made it extra "flashy" with a call out to about every switch and kick.  Hope you enjoy.

    DOFLinx - "A powerful utility for cabinet owners to make the most of force feedback and lighting." - by DDH69 This Future Pinball table has DOFLinx commands added to it. This will enable support for pinball cabinet force feedback devices such as solenoids (flippers,bumpers,slingshots,drop targets,etc), RGB lighting and flashers, beacon, strobes, blower fan, shaker and more!

    Requirements / Installation: Regardless of using this table with force feedback (Pinball Cabinet) or without (Desktop), you MUST install the current DOFLinx.vbs script into your ‘Future PinballScripts’ folder. Running the table without DOFLinx.vbs will cause an error. (FF_INIT)

    Copy the *.fpt and .xml files to your Future "PinballTables" folder

    DOFLinx.vbs is included with the DOFLinx install package. This file is not included with this table to avoid version mismatches.

    DOFLinx install package download:

    The current download of DOFLinx can be found through this post at vpforums:

    http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=35852

    It is recommended to use this table with BAM (Better Arcade Mode), in order to get the most accurate version of physics intended for this table. Copy the *.fpt and *.xml within this archive to your "Future PinballTables" directory.

    Cabinet Use:

    For cabinet users running DOFLinx: This table will function with the in-game sounds for mechanical devices such as flippers, slingshots, bumpers, etc muted.  Instead, you will only hear your cabinets feedback devices for those actions. The rest of the games sounds will play normally as intended by the table author.

    Desktop Use:

    For desktop users: This table will still function normally without the need for DOFLinx to be running or installed. You will however require the DOFLinx.vbs file (read "Requirements / Installation"). It will play perfectly with the original in-game mechanical sounds playing through your PCs speakers.

    Note: Any DMDs or HudOverlays intended for desktop use were relocated to the backbox, so that cabinet users will be able to see them.

    Night Mode:

    For cabinet users who want to play at night with their cabinet noise makers turned off, this table can be toggled between Cabinet Use (noisy), and Desktop Use (Night Mode). Please consult the DOFLinx guide (included with the DOFLinx install package) for more information on how to use Night Mode.

    Zed physics xml included, however it runs great with 2.6 as well.  Feel free to mod and share as you like.

      Dude…you’re out of control…but in a good way!  :)

      Great job! Lot’s of work put into this!

      Good use of roll-overs and other triggers to set off Flashers. This table is loved by a lot of people… and this mod allows it to flash and shine!

      Question: Do you have any of the following in your cab?

      -shaker

      -gear

      -blower fan

      -beacon

      -strobes

      -RGB undercab lighting

      -Start, Launch, Coin, Fire button  lights

      These are what I have left for video tutorials to do (I’m doing the buttons lights now).

      Just wondering… you’re doing such a great job…. but if you don’t have any of the above cabinet toys to test with, would you mind if anyone else added support for those toys to your DOFLinx mods?

      Not every table needs those to be added in, but some of them can really add that extra bit of flare to a table.

       

      Again….great work. This is a table that EVERYONE should have.  If you VP guys have never tried this table…give it a go! It’s a very unique table, and now with DOFLinx support you cabinet guys have no excuse!

      You can echo  the above post in regards to Blue vs Pink as well….great job!

      Dr.Tom, As the creator of DOFLinx its great to see another author adding DOFLinx code to tables. TerryRed made me aware of your work and I am looking forward to getting a chance to try your recent table mods.  Sadly it will be days until I can (work, etc).

      Just wanted t say “Hi” and if there is anything I can do to help you with anything DOFLinx related don’t be afraid to reach out.

      Thanks for the encouraging words everyone .  TerryRed, I have a shaker but none of the other items you mentioned.  My start and launch buttons are not wired in to my DOF.  I know I could add support for the other to us  (gear,undercab,etc), but would not know how to test them.  So, please feel free to mod if you want to add those.  Didn’t really see an area in the war of the worlds table to add shaker to, so that is why I left it out.  Plus, it just seems to give off an 80’s vibe to me and seems to fit without it.  I’m going to try some animations next time.  Would be really great with the Three Angels table, but that is the 400 level class of table to mod.  So much opportunity there.

      TerryRed, in the future, perhaps I can script in support for some of those other toys (I know from YouTube that you have them all) and let you test the table before I upload it.  I can post it in the fp tables forum here as a WIP.  What do you think?

      Always happy to test a table.

      For myself, I don’t have a shaker or gear motor, I only have a blower fan. What I do is I configure (in DOFLinx.ini) my Blower fan port to act as a gear motor or shaker when I add in the DOFLinx support. Then I test the table with my blower fan for those moments. After I know each of the devices work correctly for the table, I put my DOFLinx.ini back to my normal setup.

       

      It would be important also to the have the “list of devices used in this table” in the DOFLinx section in the table script to accurately reflect what devices you have supported so far. That way if someone else wants to help / update the table, they will know what has been done.

      Thanks for another DOFLInx table, at this rate the majority of FP tables will be DOFLinx proof in the near future :).

      I was wondering:

      Is it possible to move the ‘ video screen’ on the upper part of the table to the backglass of this tremendous table?

      You cannot do it directly.  I’ve tried.  But on tables that have this effect  (Slamt1lt’s earlier mods) the video is assigned to the table, not the translite (backglass).  Sorry.  But, fun table, eh?

      Ok, thanks.

      Then I just enjoy the tripods the way they are now… :good:
